What are you playing this weekend? (Dec 11)

Posted by Account Deletion {Family Gamer} | 11-Dec-15 | 31 comments

Another set of games arrived this week to work on: Machi Koro Deluxe Edition, Fire and Axe: A Viking Saga, the first guest artist version of Munchkin and Legendary Encounters: Predator. We’re particularly excited to get to Machi Koro, which has been high on the wish list for a year.

I played Ticket to Ride solo over the weekend, I played a scenario from the scenario book, The Bridge at Chambios. I played as Americans and also as Germans (mainly the Americans, but as Germans I made plays where I could do the most damage). The Americans won at the end of round seven, they had two of the three objectives. And instead of playing ticket to ride, my wife wanted to play Settlers of Catan, Traders and Barbarians expansion. We played the traders and barbarians scenario, and as usual, she won. I like that scenario, but she almost always wins it.

@Stargazer1 – it’s funny, I thought the game had been on the site all along and didn’t realize it was absent until I tried to link it in the header above.

In any event, oversight rectified…

Fire & Axe: A Viking Saga

# 1 is probably my least favorite game of the designer although that doesn’t say much. But talking about a varied portfolio…

@ inmarg You got #4! And what can I say, once you find a copy of #1 you are going to get many games out of it!

Both 1 and 2 have appeared numerous times in these quizes and 1 has been on 3 or 4 in a row now 😉

4? There are a few dex games missing here but based on the clue given by Hai this could well be Flick ’em up..

@AD – just read the header. Fire & Axe is one of my favorite games. Finally just reprinted. I’ve been trying to get this site to add it ****wink, wink*********

@ Stratagon – still have no idea about 1, 2 & 4. And if it’s not on this site, then it doesn’t exist right?

Update, with added clues…

1 – This one sells out almost as soon as anyone gets it in stock.

2 – The combat mechanic is a Roshambo variant. It appears often on my quizzes.

3 – Tokaido

4 – The “song” is from an older movie. You can’t help but sing it while playing this game. Also, the game is not currently on this site.

5 – Bloodbowl

6 – Caverna

@Strats Yeah…yeah…I got one wrong. 😛 And Cash N’ Guns last time – I just don’t like guns it seems.

Which brings me to my new #4 answer with a minimal off camera nudge.

4) Not Space Cadets (which I thought it was), but something that could be considered both Good and Bad and from what I have seen: Pretty.

@Stargazer1 You got 5 and 6 correct! Try looking through Hai’s clues to see if they help (but skip her clue for 4!).

@Stratagon: Taking a stab at your quiz.

1: Spyfall
2: Sounds familiar but I can’t put my finger on it. Agents of Smersh??
3: No idea.
4: Disk Wars
5: Bloodbowl
6: Caverna

@Hai

I am unsure about #4, but all the others are “Not” correct.

@Stratagon

1) Not Hai:0, but Stratagon:10
2) Not a Highlighter, but a Sharpie
3) Not a winterized Felicia Day promo game, but a kabuki Felicia Day promo game.
4) Not Dominoes. Not Tetris. Not Star Trek. But still all of them. (Fail)
5) Not a blood bath, but a smaller container
6) Not Agricola, but the playable alternative 😛

Epic Game Day quotes (one from each game, can you guess them?):

First three from a weekly meet-up:

1 – Skyward:2

2 – If you are a Russian agent and you have the British documents, now would be a great time to rush it to the helicopter. Has anyone seen the British documents?

3 – Whew, finishing this lovely field panorama was hard work. I think I will go for a bath in those hot springs. I hope a meet a monkey there.

4 – Wee-dee-dee-dee-deeee….Waaaaah…waaaaah…waaaaaaahhh. Nice shot. Too bad you missed. Pass me that disk. Now its my turn.

5 – My Black Orc will block your Lineman. I choose this die with the exclamation point on it. Since you don’t have dodge, this will knock you down. Let me roll against your armor value, then maybe I’ll start worrying about the ball.

6 – Now son, I have forged this mighty weapon in the halls of our dwarven ancestors. Go forth into this world and bring back treasures for your family. We really need a dog, a sheep, and some grain.
